The 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid may not be the most technologically advanced gasoline-electric car on the market, nor is it the most fuel efficient. It certainly isn't the newest or coolest. However, the trusty Camry Hybrid is nevertheless a well-rounded choice if you're looking for a midsize family sedan that gets significantly better fuel economy than the norm.
Like the regular Camry, the Hybrid stands out with its roomy interior, which provides space and comfort that place it among the segment leaders. We also appreciate its user-friendly cabin controls and great visibility. This feature is noteworthy, given that so many of the Camry's competitors have sleeker rooflines that can make the rearward view difficult. And special to the Hybrid is the fact that it's quicker than the regular four-cylinder Camry.
Of course, fuel economy is the real reason you're specifically considering the 2017 Camry Hybrid. It does vary slightly, depending on your choice of trim level. The base LE trim gets the best, at an EPA-estimated 40 mpg combined (42 city/38 highway). The XLE and SE trims return 38 mpg combined (40 city/37 highway). Those are fairly negligible differences, though, which ultimately equate to an average of $50 in gas savings over the course of a year.
But how does that fuel efficiency compare to the regular Camry? Well, admittedly, the gasoline-only Camry is not exactly the most fuel-efficient family sedan, bringing in 27 mpg combined. But if you buy the gasoline version, you will save between $350 and $400 over the cost of the Hybrid, depending on trim level. In other words, you'd need about seven years to repay the Hybrid's price premium by what you'd save on gas. You'll also be living with the Hybrid's smaller trunk.
The base LE, more luxurious XLE and sportier SE trim levels are fairly comparable with their non-hybrid counterparts in terms of features. The SE stands out, however, with its more controlled suspension, sharper steering and sport-themed styling elements, all of which have proved popular among shoppers. We think it's the best-looking and best-driving Camry Hybrid to date, without really giving up anything in terms of fuel economy.
So there is certainly a lot to like about the 2017 Camry Hybrid, although there may be reasons for pause. For starters, there's an all-new model on its way next year. And second, competitors from Chevrolet, Ford and Honda provide better fuel economy and are better to drive. Yet, on its own, the Camry Hybrid is arguably more appealing than its gas-only counterpart and at the right price, it should serve you and your family well. Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid for you.

Vehicle XLE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review Toyota has a long history of producing high quality hybrid vehicles. The Camry Hybrid is a really nice, upscale hybrid. The XLE trim level is hard to beat. Yes, the Honda Accord Hybrid has more bells and whistles on their equivalent model. But good luck getting it serviced properly if it has major malfunctions with the hybrid drive train or lane departure and assisted braking systems. The interior of the Camry Hybrid XLE is extremely nice, especially the heated leather seats. The power seat function would be nicer if it had memory for adjustments for different drivers, but it doesn't. The entertainment system is nice. The JBL sound system is great. But the Scout GPS navigation system that works with your cell phone is still buggy. And if you are using the GPS on back roads and lose your cell phone signal, you'll need your mapquest directions if you don't know where you are going. Garmin is still the best system for GPS. Why didn't Toyota interface with them to allow voice and maps over the Entune app system? Thus far, the driving experience has been great, and the gas mileage has been right at 39 to 40 mpg as advertised. As I write this review, I just passed 1000 miles. So it's still too early to judge realiability. This car is primarily driven by my wife. I was worried that it might not be comfortable for me on a trip. We took our first trip last weekend and I was pleasantly surprised. I drove the entire time and did not feel any driving fatigue. The seat remained comfortable and I arrived without a sore back!
